Tiffany Haddish will bring her breakout comedic talent to Netflix, in an original hour-long stand up comedy special.
Haddish, whose breakthrough performance in last year’s smash hit Girls’ Trip earned her wide acclaim, can currently be seen opposite Tracy Morgan on The Last O.G., and will soon star in Night School, The Oath, and Nobody’s Fool.
Now, having been tapped to voice the character Tuca in the upcoming Netflix adult animated series Tuca & Bertie, the streaming giant has ordered a solo special from the actor and comedian.
“Tiffany Haddish is a force,” says Lisa Nishimura, VP of Original Documentary and Comedy. “Hilariously funny, brash and self-effacing, she’s an incredible artist who is winning over audiences while breaking barriers, and we are tremendously proud that she will showcase her formidable talent on Netflix.”
Haddish will tape the special in early 2019 and it will premiere globally later that year.
